It's on my calendar!
Since I am retired, I will not be driving either of my vettes to work. However, since June 27 is the final day for Cruise Fest in Cleveland, I will be driving my 02 wherever Andre has arranged for us to be. Come on CACers, join the fun in Cleveland.
I drive mine every Friday!
I drive the Silver C6 everyday (even in MI) It's my daily driver and I LOVE it.
I'm vett-less (temp)I'll mark it on my 09 calander.
I take mine to work at least once a week.
I work in a somewhat dumpy area of town but i havent had any problems so far. I take the scenic route along the Ottawa river to avoid the highway congestion and i love getting up in the morning knowing that I'll have a great ride to work and back.. and i usually come back way before rush hour.
If i know that where i'm going has a safe place for my car, i'll drive it there. Either you have a garage queen or a driver, you can't have both.
Hmm.. maybe i should have said that you can't have one car that is both.
I drove mine:
with my new "just got it today" tag too!
It's my daily driver.
Mine's downstairs. . . Mid America hasn't posted pictures yet.
I drove mine today. And every Friday, Thursday, Wednesday, Tuesday and Monday, it's my daily driver!
